Mia Zia Fiorella by Enrico Floriddia.
“The book Mia Zia Fiorella is part of a series of verifications.
Verification is a word that frequently occurs in italian art related to images. Ugo Mulas’ Verifiche focused on the medium and its specifications; La verifica incerta edited by Alberto Grifi and Gianfranco Baruchello enlighted structures and frameworks in cinematic industry; my work draws attention on the subjects, therefore on the photograph as a document.
Each verification is made of a series of photographs of one person in one place. They question the idea of photographic evidence; especially in the touristic usage of photography : a person standing in front of a landmark. These pictures by themselves actually do not inform us at all. They are dull, irrelevant, flat. At this point – when the photograph stops to be readable – we start to question what we are looking at.”
